Microsoft has redesigned several of its exam objectives guides and wants to get your feedback.
Microsoft has redesigned several of its exam objectives guides and wants
to get your feedback. Guides for 70-210
Windows 2000 Professional, 70-215
Windows 2000 Server, 70-306
Developing Windows-based Applications with Visual Basic .NET and 70-316
Developing Windows-based Applications with Visual C# .NET now have links
to recommended Microsoft courses, links to Microsoft Press books and technical
resources on TechNet, MSDN and the Training and Certification discussion
in the Microsoft Communities discussion groups.
Microsoft has also reformatted the exam objective outline into a matrix
that categorizes "skills measured" with a key showing how each objective
is covered within Microsoft's recommended courses for that exam. The company
plans to upgrade other guides by the end of the month, but is asking for
feedback for future design considerations:
- Is the length of the exam prep guide appropriate? Or would you prefer
more links to other pages that provide information in greater detail?
- Is the expanded list of Preparation Tools useful? Are the resources
- The Skills Being Measured chart lists each exam objective and the
Microsoft Official Curriculum (MOC) courses that may be available for
that objective. Is this tool effective in helping you assess where you
may need formal training to supplement your experience?
Those questions appear in Microsoft's announcement of the new exam guide
format, which you can view at http://www.microsoft.com/traincert/mcpexams/prepare/examfeedback.asp.
